VX Race PFD Life Jacket

Happy with the Jacket. I wanted a light weight jacket for paddling in the surf, without buckles or zips at he front so there is nothing obstructing remounting my surf ski. The jacket has fulfilled my needs.

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
